Re: Love the Tetris lamp, but you missed the Sonos system!
Sadly, I am not invited either.


Anyone out in commenter land gotten hands-on experience with Echo?

Lorna, did you get the Echo? Can you vouch for its sound quality and "intelligence?"

Doug, I am shocked that Amazon has not invited you to the Echo party. Let's shame them on Twitter forthwith.

If you're going to be bicycling in place at your desk, shouldn't you at least be recharging your phone or something?

Re: Holiday tech
If Tesla is not feasible, I would prefer to get the desk lamp - it's highly modular and looks beautiful - it reminds me of one famous video game I played 20 years ago...

@ Laurienne.  You are right the Lifeproof case is the best gift. Tablets and smartphones were not made to endure the physical demands of daily lives.  If we want to continue to use our smart devices, they must first survive.

Re: Holiday tech
I wouldn't mind a Tesla. I'd be willing to do a review over the course of several years...

Ohm my
Got my eye on the Ohm Portable speaker and wireless charging dock. Nice one-stop shop for mobile device charging and music. At $170 it's not exactly cheap -- though reasonable -- so the sound quality needs to be better than just decent. Question: Is the pad big enough to charge a small tablet?

Holiday tech
Someone in my house has a Tesla crush: I had no idea how many videos related to Tesla were out there. Sadly Santa will not be leaving one wrapped in a bow in the driveway. One more tech gift idea: Lifeproof cases for phones and tablets are always thoughtful. (Read: I know you spill/drop stuff. A lot.)
